We all love rooting our devices, and we all have many different reasons as to why we root. But oddly enough, some companies don’t want you to have root access.

Retuning to our normal programming with this episode of XDA Xposed Tuesday, XDA Developer TV Producer TK reviews an Xposed Module that hides root functionality from some apps. XDA Forum Member devadvance created the Root Cloak Xposed Module to . . . READ ON »

The spectacle that is the International CES show has come to an end for yet another year. While there are bound to be more Android announcements at the upcoming Mobile World Congress, there are still some things announced this week to look forward to—and some things that were announced that you won’t look forward to.
Let’s start with the unexciting. The mobile device manufacturer with a name that is not pronounced how it is spelled, Huawei, released an updated version of the Ascend Mate phone. Adding in 4G LTE connectivity, the creatively named follow-up, Ascend Mate 2 4G sits . . . READ ON »
This year at the International CES 2014, XDA Developer TV Producer Jordan saw a lot of smartwatches—everything from the Neptune Pine to the new MetaWatches, and much more.

We will be the first to admit that when it comes to desirable phones for XDA community members, Huawei devices are not on the top of the list. Last year at CES, we took a look at the Huawei Ascend Mate, and honestly, we were not impressed. Well, at this year’s CES, Huawei announced the Ascend Mate 2 4G. Is this device any good?

Samsung was at this year’s CES in a BIG way! They have advertisements on just about any of the many shuttle buses circling the Las Vegas Convention Center, they had ads all over the Convention Center itself, and that got the location into trouble, as the ads announced their releases before the actual press event. At the press event, Samsung announced a new Samsung Note Pro 12.2, three new Galaxy Tab Pros—coming in the sizes of 8.4, 10.1, and 12.2 inches—and the Samsung Galaxy Camera 2.

The US carrier-branded versions of the curved LG G Flex have been given a release date at this year’s CES 2014. Since LG had the G Flex on display, we took a moment to see what the big deal was all about. Does the curved display add anything to the device, or is it just a LG G2 doing crunches?
XDA Developer TV Producer Jordan was on site and got a chance to get his hands on the LG G Flex and the wearable LG LifeBand Touch (which you can find a video on on his channel). Jordan sat . . . READ ON »
Nvidia has officially brought an end to the “cores race” in two ways with the release of the Tegra K1. By releasing a device with “192 cores,” Nvidia not only wins in the marketing game, but they also make the numbers game a joke. Ultimately, it’s not about the number of cores. Rather, it’s about the power of the processor. But marketing numbers aside, the Tegra K1 is very powerful.
XDA Developer TV Producer Jordan was on site at International CES 2014 and got a chance to catch a demonstration of the Tegra K1′s power. Jordan sat down and . . . READ ON »
At the 2014 International CES, Sony released two phones. The phones are similar and share similar names. These devices are the Sony Xperia Z1S and Xperia Z1 Compact.

XDA Developer TV Producer Jordan was on site and got his hands on the Xperia triplets: the Z1, Z1S, and Z1 Compact. Jordan sat down and talked with the folks and Sony. And in this video, he shares what he learned, while showing off the two new devices . . . READ ON »
